Mount Racey is located on the western slopes of Mt Reisui in the western area of Yubari City, in the region of Hokkaido to the east of Sapporo and Chitose. It is the most recently opened of the larger ski resorts found on Hokkaido. One of the four ungroomed 'nature zones' boasts a 45 degree slope. This particular region doesn't usually get as much snow as other popular areas in Hokkaido, but Mount Racey has snow making machines to help things along when needed.

Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan and also the largest and northernmost prefecture (though it is not usually referred to as a prefecture). It has coastlines on the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk and also the Pacific Ocean. Sapporo is the capital city of Hokkaido and was host to the 1972 Winter Olympics. Hokkaido is home to the largest number of ski hills in Japan. While the majority of them are very small, some of the larger ski and snowboard resorts in Hokkaido - mostly found in regions to the west and east of Sapporo - are amongst the most famous in Japan.
